    Author: Janet Renouf-Miller | ISBN: 978-0-9566751-0-1

    ‘A veritable encyclopedia of spinning know-how, this book has the beginner in mind, but experienced spinners will find plenty of helpful new tips. Janet is an experienced teacher – her comprehensive instructions allow new spinners to get started with the minimum of equipment and give those who have a wheel already a full understanding of its operation. The chapter on ‘other fibres’ offers a wealth of information about fibres as diverse as yak and SeaCell, as well as information on the preparation and spinning of silk. With its wealth of information and encouraging approach, I would highly recommend this book to any spinner’ Review, Spin-Off Magazine. 224 pages, £12.95. Buy from our partner, the Centre for Alternative Technology.

    There’s a crash coming – a slap from Mother Nature. This isn’t pessimistic; it’s realistic.

    The human impact on nature and on each other is accelerating and needs systemic change to reverse.

    We’re not advocating poverty, or a hair-shirt existence. We advocate changes that will mean better lives for almost everyone.
